      Tinnitus Since:
      11/2007
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Noise Induced
      Wondering if anyone has had this new tech used with tinnitus?

      The device claims:

      "the high-tech irrigation process of the GentleWave System harnesses optimized procedure fluids, vertical flow and broad-spectrum acoustic energies to debride and disinfect the root canal system—even the undetected, uninstrumented spaces—with a minimally invasive protocol that leaves more of the tooth structure intact."​

      Biggest concerns are of course, whatever this acoustic energy is, and concern about bond conduction and closeness to the inner ear. I can't find anyone who knows about it and its noise potential to the inner ear.

      Just like the horror stories with the ultra sonic cleaners that many fell victim too, I definitely don't want to go in blind with this new tech. Anyone who has had, or knows about it that can chime in, I'd appreciate it.

      Yeah, "acoustic energies" definitely sounds ominous.
